    Just beautiful, Dawn. I am so glad that the hospital gave you and Yvette the respect and the rights to which you are entitled. You and Yvette, were – and are – very special.

    May God continue to help you forward in loving your beautiful family. My sister lives in deltona. She is a really good caterer for the party if you need one. But I’ll continue to find new ways to Love my wife everyday. And holder tighter in the prayerful thoughts of being there forever. God bless you all.

    I can’t imagine the way your heart feels now. I am at a loss for you I only know you and Yvette from your book but I do know what it feels like to love and to lose not through death but just the loss of someone you love. The permanence of what you are feeling is unfathomable to me. I am however glad that right now you were able to have some say in her care and in her final days. I pray for your healing and respect your braveness. Thank you for sharing your life.

    I am sorry I never met Yvette or you. I lost my husband and best friend after only five and a half months. I understand your pain. God created us in His image and wants us to love one another.

    Dawn, I cannot find words to express my sorrow for what you are feeling, but I can see how being legally married made parts of it smoother along the way. We must all unite in the quest to make being LGBTQ just part of everyday life, not something to be fought for or against. Continuing the fight in Yvette’ s memory.
